I believe that investment in oneself is lifelong - you should too.
I love live entertainment, a show, the theater, sports of all kinds, art -wine fests, music, cooking and enjoy long talks, walks, the ocean, day trips, sharing my pooch with others and giving back to causes that matter to me. I've always put my best friends first.
I ask that we all Simply be. Be you. If you can smile easily, laugh at yourself and make others laugh, this is a gift. Hang on to it for keeps and please say hello:-) !
I see the online dating scene as one more avenue for meeting people. I believe that you don't know the outcome until you try. No penalties for putting your best foot forward.
My mate - some qualities like these would be welcomed: sensitive, loyal, expressive, centered, physically fit and/or fit-minded, intellectually sharp and has the ability to lead with the heart. Admittedly, chivalry is high on the plus list. Dressed up or down, you are comfortable in your shoes. Self-motivated yet you recognize that people make the world go around. I do so believe that our character is shaped by the lives with whom we come into contact :-)
